Leaving after breakfast we travel around the Wirral coast via Hoylake, with its famous golf courses, and through the tunnel into Liverpool. Why not visit the Albert Dock complex with its many attractions, including the Beatles Story, see the magnificent Cathedrals, or just wander around the city. While here we also take a trip on the River Mersey to see the city from a different point. We than travel through the Mersey Tunnel to Port Sunlight. Here we visit Sunlight Vision and enjoy a guided tour of Port Sunlight Heritage Centre, built by William Hesketh Lever for his factory workers and named after his famous Sunlight soap.
